Thank You Veterans!

Today is the perfect opportunity to say thank you to all the men and women who serve or have served in the military.  In this world where we are constantly surrounded by reports of self serving and morally bankrupt behavior, veterans remind us that there are still brave people wiling to act selflessly for the greater good.  It goes beyond that though.  Veterans remind us that there is a greater good.  They remind us that we are worth fighting for.  And they challenge us to not take their sacrifice for granted but instead to work to solve the problems we face as a country and to act honorably in its leadership.

So, as you read your two hundredth story about occupy wall street, partisan politics, and/or some elaborate fraud to pillage taxpayer dollars, remember, at least for today, that there were and are people that understood that even though the US system isn't perfect, it's pretty darn good.

Thank you veterans!
